Let your doubt pass, feel good in your style.
It's the shape of you that makes the world smile!
The Shape of You encourages kids to shed their doubts and embrace themselves just the way they are. In her book of sweet rhymes, charming characters, and engaging illustrations by Bob Lipski, author Meggan Redfield hopes to inspire self-acceptance and compassion in readers of all shapes and sizes.
Meggan Redfield lives in the woods of Stillwater, Minnesota with her husband and three sons. She can often be found reading by a cozy fire, enjoying a sauna, or jumping into a freezing lake. She has a degree in Occupational Therapy and specializes in Holistic and Behavioral Health. Many of her favorite childhood memories are attached to books, so when the opportunity arose to be a volunteer librarian at her sons' school, she reveled in the role of helping the kids find their own just-right book. The idea for The Shape of You began after a discussion with her son, Sawyer (a.k.a. Sawyer the Square), about self-esteem during his middle school years. Originally written on a Menards' receipt on the return home that day, she is delighted to share this little tale from her heart to yours.
